openldap database replication and multiple hosts TLScertificates question


I am learning to configure/use openldap.  I have a question regarding   
database replication   I have a primary openldap server.  I prepared/installed  
openssl certificates for the server  -and he slapd.conf has these lines

#--- Define SSL and TLS properties
TLSCertificateFile    /etc/certs/ldap1stServerCert.pem
TLSCertificateKeyFile /etc/certs/ldap1stServerKey.pem
TLSCACertificateFile  /etc/certs/cacert.pem 
#---if client authentication is/isNOT required 
TLSVerifyClient demand 

I want to replicate the database over two other hosts. Call these 2ndServer 
and 3rdserver.  Both of these computers  ALSO have ssl certificates in 
/etc/certs like  so:-

#### in  2nd  ldap host

#### in  3rd  ldap host

As regards these  certificates  (the fact that they are not the same ) I would 
like to know what happens when I try to do  replication..  I am following the 
guides Syncrepl configuration   ( 
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/replication.html  )
18.3.2. Delta-syncrepl    ( also from   
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/replication.html )

( In otherwords is is best to remove the certificates and  install after  
replication or whatever. )

Thanks in advance
